The Lyrics

As sung by Enron CEO Ken Lay, while testifying to Congress
(instrumental intro)

You ask if I've deceived you...
I won't explain.
You'll have to ask Jeff Skilling
About Enron's gain.

How long have I known W?
I won't tell you...
I'll take the Fifth Amendment.
I will not squeal for you.

I suppose... you'll just let me go.
I suppose... done my part, but won't say so.

Well, W's giving me hell... I got the broom.
Well, W's foul odor's not stopped by perfume.
Well, W's the puppet of corporate crime.
I'll take the Fifth Amendment, and hope I don't serve time...
I'll take the Fifth Amendment, and hope I don't serve time...

(repeat verses)
